    Tom Cotton pans Trump plan to allow more foreign guest workers

    Tom Cotton pans Trump plan to allow more foreign guest workers

    Sen. Tom Cotton, a close ally of President Donald Trump, issued a scathing criticism of the administration's plans to allow 30,000 additional foreign guest workers in the United States this year.


    The Homeland Security and Labor departments will allow visas for 30,000 returning guest workers who were employed in the United States in recent years according to the Federal Register. Many people in both parties support increasing the number of seasonal workers each year, but the Arkansas Republican and immigration hard-liner said the U.S "immigration system should prioritize the needs of U.S. citizens over cheap foreign labor."



    "Allowing an additional 30,000 seasonal workers into the country forces Americans to compete for jobs against non-citizens who drag down wages. We should be setting immigration policies that support wage growth and employment for Americans instead of encouraging a race to the bottom by importing low-cost labor," Cotton said.


    Cotton has been an advocate for restrictive immigration policies, often in lockstep with the administration. To great fanfare in 2017, Cotton and Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) introduced legislation backed by Trump that would cut legal immigration.

    Actually there was a series of articles on a few illegals that were working on Trump properties just a month or two ago.

    often in lockstep with the administration
    Translation: This is Politico calling both Trump and Sen Cotton Nazis by using the word lockstep which refers to Nazi marching practices during WW2.

    US to allow 30,000 more visas for seasonal workers, including Trump's Mar-a-Lago

    The Trump administration plans to let an additional 30,000 foreigners return to the United States through September for seasonal work, a move that reflects how the booming economy has complicated President Donald Trump's hard-line efforts on immigration.


    Details of the plan were in a draft rule obtained by The Associated Press. It would benefit oyster shucking companies, fisheries, loggers and seasonal hotels — including Trump's own Mar-a-Lago club in Florida. All use the visas to hire migrants for temporary work they say Americans won't do.


    The visas, known as H-2Bs, will go only to returning foreign workers who have had the visa before, over the past three budget years. Many go back to the same employers year after year. Those workers have had background checks, are trusted and are not likely to stay past their visa, officials said.


    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will begin taking applications from employers on behalf of the workers once the temporary rule is published in the Federal Register. That is expected Wednesday.

    The strong U.S. economy has made it increasingly difficult for employers to find labor. The number of seasonal visas has been capped at 66,000 per budget year. Some businesses and lawmakers say that limit is badly outdated, especially when the unemployment rate is the lowest it's been in 49 years .

    Employers say they desperately need more labor, pitting businesses against people inside and outside the White House who say the visas take away American jobs. Trump has benefited from both seasonal workers and people working in the country illegally at his golf clubs.


    Within the White House, adviser Stephen Miller and others want to restrict immigration, including reducing visas for high-skilled workers and suspending or limiting entry to the U.S. for individuals from countries with high rates of short-term visa overstays.


    Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner has been working on his own overhaul for months, aiming for immigration and border security changes that Republicans can rally around heading into the 2020 presidential election.


    Trump had once railed against the flow of foreign workers and argued, despite conflicting evidence, that foreigners hurt American workers by competing for jobs and driving down wages. But Trump now says he favors more legal immigration because of economic gains on his watch.

    Trump said in his State of the Union speech this year that he wanted people "to come into our country in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come in legally."


    A spokeswoman for the Center for Immigration Studies, a think tank that supports restricting immigration, tweeted that Trump, with the temporary visa worker plan, was selling out to cheap foreign labor.


    But the National Thoroughbred Racing Association of Lexington, Kentucky, which represents scores of racetrack operators, owners, breeders and trainers, said many trainers "will no doubt qualify for these visas because of the labor shortage that is now the norm on racetrack backstretches," according to the group's president, Alex Waldrop.


    The debate has played out in Congress, too. Two bipartisan groups sending letters to the Homeland Security Department: one urged an increase in the number of temporary visas and one expressed concern over a possible increase.

    Officials from the departments of Homeland Security and Labor said the decision to allocate the visas was based in part on the fact some businesses could face irreparable harm if they can't employ the workers. The departments have jointly decided to raise the cap during the past two budget years, but it was only 15,000 more in those years.

    The acting Homeland Security secretary, Kevin McAleenan, said the additional visas were a temporary fix.


    He said his department wants lawmakers "to pursue a long-term legislative fix that both meets employers' temporary needs while fulfilling" Trump's executive orders on American buying and hiring.


    According to the most recent government data on visa approvals, half of the temporary visas went to horticultural and agricultural workers. Food service, forestry and logging work and fisheries, hunter trappers made up the bulk of the rest of the 2017 visas.

    Sens. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., and Angus King, I-Maine, along with Reps. Andy Harris, R-Md., and Chellie Pingree, D-Maine, and about 25 other bipartisan lawmakers sent a letter to Homeland Security this year saying they were working on a solution for the visa cap, but until then the increase was badly needed.


    But a separate bipartisan group of senators, including Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, wrote last month they were concerned the visas enabled worker exploitation and fostered human trafficking and debt bondage because of the fees associated with the visas. Combined travel and visa costs can run into the thousands of dollars.


    "Americans working alongside H-2B visa holders can find it difficult to compel employers to abide by federal and state labor and employment laws," the senators wrote.







    AGAIN, they want to hire low wage SLAVES and then bring new SLAVES in the next year while the old SLAVES never return home.
